Our Commitment to Security

We have put in place what we believe to be reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the personally identifiable information we collect and help prevent unauthorized access and use of such data.

  • We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.  To assist in keeping your personal information safe, you must use an SSL-enabled browser (i.e., Internet Explorer).
  • We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.  Additionally, change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser.
